Non Album Collection 94


A model maker is commisioned by Hollywood starlet to reproduce her villa in model form. Really cool art, great colors, and a compellingly complex main character - unfortunately, the plot plays like a lesser Twilight Zone episode.

Rabbi's Cat (Joann Sfar) (Pantheon Books 2005)

In Algeria in the 1930s, a cat belonging to a widowed rabbi and his beautiful daughter, Zlabya, eats the family parrot and gains the ability to speak. To his master’s consternation, the cat immediately begins to tell lies (the first being that he didn’t eat the parrot). The rabbi vows to educate him in the ways of the Torah, while the cat insists on studying the kabbalah and having a Bar Mitzvah. They consult the rabbi’s rabbi, who maintains that a cat can’t be Jewish–but the cat, as always, knows better. Zlabya falls in love with a dashing young rabbi from Paris, and soon master and cat, having overcome their shared self-pity and jealousy, are accompanying the newlyweds to France to meet Zlabya’s cosmopolitan in-laws. Full of drama and adventure, their trip invites countless opportunities for the rabbi and his cat to grapple with all the important–and trivial–details of life.

Tangents (1996)

The eight stories that make this book up are as many variations regarding tangential, imperfect, and limited sentimental relationships that come to their end. Artists, civil servants, professionals, politicians... people belonging to more or less well-off social strata for whom these relationships end up meaning a conflict of own interests; and who, in the end, don´t know how to keep them -or don´t want to.
